Charity & Circularity
RMF have been connected to the team at Encore Environment for a number of years and we are delighted to have worked with them via their Project Divert Initiative.
Project Divert aims to divert valuable materials to charities, schools and community groups to prevent items with a future life being wasted and entering landfill.
Alongside OD Group, The Project Heron site team donated sofas and carpet, previously in the Fleet Place House reception and still in excellent condition to free@Last charity.
Rachel Rowley, Managing Director at Encore Environment said: “We are delighted that Project DIVERT aligned the surplus furniture to free@Last. They provide a variety of opportunities for children and young people from advice, enterprise, and therapy to equip them to be resilient and independent through times in their lives.
Jozefa Lewis, OD Group Sustainability and Wellbeing Manager said, “We are so pleased with the success of our first implementation of Project DIVERT, As with all our projects we aim to reduce waste and ensure diversion from landfill. Project DIVERT has been a fantastic resource in connecting us with those who can give furniture and finishes a new life and purpose’
At RMF we facilitated the introduction and transport of the items to free@last as our Sales and Marketing Manager Rebecca volunteers with the charity in her spare time. We are delighted to see these items go to such a worthy charity and avoid going into landfill.
